Read full description of the books:
Lovers of fine travel and adventure writing will savor Mike Tidwell's richly acclaimed narrative of his days as a Peace Corps volunteer. His task was to help people in the remote corners of Zaire raise tilapia in ponds they would dig themselves, with muscle power alone. This book--with a new introduction by the author--is a masterful account of culture clash, generosity of spirit, and true grit. It is a must-read for anyone with aspirations to "change the world."
